2:41 am
jobs and raising wages. we will do that by revealing obama care, passing a flat tax. abolishing the irs, stopping amnesty, securing the border that's my priority. >> you said last week talked, donald trump is entertaining. it's entertaining. other stuff slips in that's the way in which conservatives i talk to for years have said that's the way the culture slips. it's the job of a politician to stand up and say no there are guardrails here. >> listen, think about what presidents have meant in history. lincoln's gettysburg address. fdr, only thing we have to fear is fear itself. jfk, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. i think people at home are asking themselves, how would we feel if our children came in repeating the word of the president of the united states. if that president was donald trump. if it would embarrass you to have your children repeat the word of the president, that's not a good thing.
2:42 am
appeal to our better angels, appeal to our shared val use that make america who we are. and that is how i am trying to campaign. i think that's what the american people are looking for. >> donald trump said there need to be flexibility on m graduation. you talked "the new york times." and off the record conversation. he is right of course. negotiation. flexibility. right? >> he is most absolutely not right. but it was a stunning aspect of the debate. he said over and over. flexibility. flexibility. flexibility. that's one of the reasons why we are selling now, yoga mats on our website. tedcruz.org. they're breathe yoga mats. if you find yourself, boiling over with rage. spend time doing yoga. breathing maybe help you relax. listen, conservatives are used to seeing republican candidates run to the right in the primary. run to the left in the general. part of the reason we are angry. we are tired of politicians lying to us.
2:43 am
debate, john, donald is running to the left. he is not out of the primary. in the debate this week. donald stood up there and said to marco rubio, i agreen with you, i understand why you compromised and were flexible negotiating with chuck schumer on the gang of eight. this is the donald trump who has made immigration the centerpiece of his campaign. who said he agreed with marco rubio supporting the gang of eight amnesty bill. stunning. >> last question, something that puzzles me. you talk about he is going to be a president. you can't let your children watch tv. marco rubio says he is a canman. all these terrible things. at the end you are asked if you will support him. you do. doesn't that undermine the criticisms say he will be a danger to conservatism and republican values. >> listen, one, hillary clinton as president would be more catastrophic. a third term of barack obama. i cannot support hillary clinton. number two at the outset of the campaign. i promised i would support the
2:44 am
i am some one who keeps his word. past week on super tuesday. in the state of texas. we won an overwhelming victory. by 17 points. that is meaningful. people of the texas know me and my heart. they are people i made promises to. i ran for senate. you elect me. i will leetd the fight against obama care. amnesty, lead the fight against our debt. and lead the fight to protect religious, the bill of rights. the reason we won in texas, texas said, ted you kept your word. i will tell you, john. as president iable do the same thing. >> mr. trump you are bringing a lot of new people into the republican party. some people are saying they want to leave the republican party too. what is your message to those who want to leave? good riddance? >> i think they shouldn't leave. i think they should get together. i think everybody should be unified. we are building up numbers incredible within the republican party. you have been seeing, south
2:45 am
numbers are astronomical. i don't think they have ever seen anything like this, actually. by the way the democrats are losing. democrats are going down, 35%, 40%. we are going up 50%. couple states over 100%. >> what do you make of the effort to try to take the nomination away from you by going to the convention? >> i am very surprised by it. very surprised to hear third party the i will appoint conservative judges. and a third party would mean that him ear would win or who ever is going to be running. you are going to have liberal judges as many as four or even five if you can belief that during this, period of time. so a third party means absolutely they will have four or five very liberal judges appointed as owe posed to four or five, very conservative judges. i think it is really playing with fire. >> they say they can't be in the party with you as head of it? >> i've don't understand that. i get along with people. i've am a unifieper. very much a unifier. maybe people don't see that.
2:46 am
my relationship to people has been great over the years. again. i am new to politics. been doing this now for seven months. i think i have done a very good job in seven months. but we have a tremendous number of people coming in and showing up to volt. the lines in all the states that i have won have been record setting. >> in this very room, a big night or superer tuesday, you said about paul ryan you hope to get along with. if you didn't. he will have to pay a big price. you said about john mccain. he has to be very careful. how can you be a unifieper when you are saying those things about two republicans. >> i think he would pay a big price. a very split party. he has done a good job. ham. him. i am stronger on the border. i was in favor of paul ryan. he very much is a unifieper.
2:47 am

2:48 am
i have been watched this question so many times. i have rejected. so many times. what did you think abut ryan saying that. i guess that was my question. >> don't forget. he is getting a lot of information to you guys. when i tweet about a rejection almost right after the show ended. maybe i wasn't clear or something. how many times do i have to sach if it? i told cnn when chris christie endorsed me. very good endorsement, the question was asked. i rejected it there. news conference was a day before. how many times do i have to reject or disavow. >> let me ask you this question. david duke is saying to his supporters and followers, vote for donald trump. white supremacists are saying. do you want the votes? >> i don't want them. i don't want him to. i can't help it. if he says it. john, if he says it, he says it. do i want it, no. >> no, i dent want anything.

they don't want to pick it up. i have been asked this question so many times. i have rejected. so many times. what did you think about ryan saying that? i guess that was my question. >> don't forget. he is getting a lot of information to you guys. when i tweet about a rejection almost right after the show ended. maybe i wasn't clear or something. how many times do i have to sach if it? i told cnn when chris christie endorsed me. very good endorsement, the question was asked. i rejected it there. news conference was a day before. how many times do i have to reject or disavow. >> let me ask you this question. david duke is saying to his supporters and followers, vote for donald trump. white supremacists are saying. you want the votes? i don't want them. i don't want him to. i can't help it. if he says it. but i don't want it. john, if he says it, he says it. do i want it, no. no, i don't want anything. >> white supremacists.
